Michael Jackson's Invincible Debuts At No. 1 In 13 Countries

Nov 9, 2001

Michael Jackson proved he is still a force to be reckoned with on the album charts as the King of Pop's first album of new material in over six years, Invincible, debuts at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. The album sold 366,272 in its first week. For those keeping score at home, that's less than the 440,000 copies DMX sold with last week's No. 1 debut, ''The Great Depression''; less than the 605,000 sister Janet Jackson's ''All for You'' sold its first week earlier this year; and less even than the 391,000 first-week sales Jacko's own 1995 ''HIStory,'' which would go on to sell just 2.1 million copies. Jackson also debuted at No. 1 in the U.K., Australia, France, Holland, Norway, Sweden. Latin sensation Enrique Iglesias came in right behind him with his second English-language studio album, Escape, which clocked in at No. 2 behind 267,301 units sold. Elsewhere in the top 10, the Backstreet Boys' Hits: Chapter One bowed at No. 4. In a particularly busy top 20 this week, Lenny Kravitz's Lenny landed at No. 12; Jermaine Dupri's Instructions debuted at No. 15; Mannheim Steamroller's Christmas Extraordinaire hit No. 17; What's Going On, featuring remixes of the recent all-star rendition of the Marvin Gaye classic by Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, Moby, and the Neptunes, landed at No. 18; and Three 6 Mafia's Choices grabbed the No. 19 spot. Other notable debuts include Barbra Streisand's Christmas Memories (No. 32); Erick Sermon's Music (No. 33); the soundtrack to Harry Potter& the Sorcerer's Stone (No. 52); Destiny's Child's 8 Days of Christmas (No. 59); and Phish's Vol. 6 -- 11/27/98 -- Worcester, Massachusetts (No. 105).
